about

New York-based cellist Okkyung Lee has built an impressive standing via numerous releases on labels like Tzadik and Ecstatic Peace!, collaborations with an exceptional cross-section of heavies, and critically acclaimed solo albums. Her playing possesses an organic intensity across a vast range, and she is exceptionally musical when producing visceral multilayered sound using extended techniques. Here, she offers different facets on the two pieces which comprise Speckled Stones and Dissonant Green Dots. Side A, “Speckled Stones”, combines chaotic computer-generated and analogue synthesizer sounds; their rhythms and timbres providing multilayered ambience that builds and then clears like patches of night fog. The clean tones of Side B, “Dissonant Green Dots”, suggest early polyphony within cycles of tense, entrancing phrasings.
